9780080434537: Local Knowledge and Wisdom in Higher Education (Issues in Higher Education) (Issues in Higher Education)

During the past three decades, there has been a substantial growth in the number of higher education institutions in developing countries. The majority of these institutions have adopted an approach to teaching and research modelled on the universities of the Western world. Consequently, Western processes of knowledge analysis and transmission have largely remained unchallenged as they are implemented in the pursuit of economic modernisation. However, in recent years, there has been a movement to reaffirm the significance of local knowledge and wisdom in education. There is now an urgency to rediscover local knowledge and wisdom as universities and their communities respond to globalisation. "Local Knowledge and Wisdom in Higher Education" presents an insightful account of the role of indigenous knowledge in higher education institutions across a number of societies.

About the Author:

Bob Teasdale has taught at Flinders University, Adelaide, for the past thirty years. He is currently an associate professor in the School of Education and the director of the Flinders University Institute of International Education. He has worked extensively in indigenous Australian settings, and in the island nations of the South Pacific. For the past decade Bob has served as a consultant to UNESCO. He assisted the Education Division to develop its response to the UN World Decade for Cultural Development, and with his wife Jennie is currently coordinating the UNESCO Teacher Education for Peace Project in the Asia-Pacific region. Zane Ma Rhea is a lecturer and consultant in cultural diversity at the National Centre for Gender and Cultural Diversity, Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne. After an early career working with profoundly deaf people in Australia and the United Kingdom, she ran a vegetarian restaurant in Spain. Returning to Australia she completed a graduate diploma in Aboriginal education, an honours degree in sociology and a PhD at Flinders University, Adelaide. Her doctorate explored a cross-cultural understanding of wisdom through research about the higher education relationship between Australia and Thailand. She was awarded a Smuts Visiting Fellowship in Commonwealth Studies at the University of Cambridge, focusing her research on the exchange of academic ideas amongst Commonwealth nations. Zane has published a number of chapters and articles about how academic ideas are exchanged as gifts and commodities between cultures, the relationship between Buddhism, feminism and post-modern theory, and how university ideas are produced, reproduced, disseminated and legitimated in a globalised world.
